peter,

I use kmeleon, which is a fork of firefox and is much faster and has less crap to deal with. You can install speed up macros which make it even faster or tinker with the config file yourself. Firefox while being much better than IE is still to bloated for my taste. I like my life simpler, one of my automobiles is a 1974 plymouth Valient and the other a 1969 Chevrolet Pickup; the newrer car is a 1992 chevrolet cavalier which I stripped out most of the autmated stuff including the air conditioner. I would much rather add what I need than to deal with the crap that I will never use. For my customers, if they want those bells and whistles and the slow performance which goes with them, I give them what they want.

Gerry

Where kmeleon?

I agree re cars, so much crap under the the bonnets, how do I get at spark plugs for example, the heart of the car.

My example is a 1930s Austin 7 or 10.

basic 4 cylinder engine, transmission, wheels, 4 seats and a body, steering wheel, gear stick, go stop and clutch pedal.

And everything so simple, if it broke, 5 minutes and $2 to fix.

But ONLY a small gas/petrol tank. Who cared, it went to the moon on one tank fill.

Good night, this night, its an early night
